Generally, Uterine Fibroids go unnoticed and there is never any manifestation of symptoms in many women. However, in symptomatic cases, the symptoms of Uterine Fibroids are as follows:
- Menorrhagia: Fibroids can cause periods to become prolonged and the flow to become heavy. The quality of menstrual blood can be bright red, dark and even accompanied by numerous small and large clots.
- Dysmenorrhea: Menses tend to be extremely painful, especially with the passage of large clots. The pain usually begins in the lower abdomen and progress to the lower back and thighs. Some fibroid-stricken females can become so overwhelmed with the pain that their daily activities become hampered, making this one of the most distressing symptoms of Uterine Fibroids.
- Metrorrhagia: The woes of a woman suffering from uterine fibroids do not just begin or end with periods. Many times, she may experience bleeding even between periods.
